Companies are exploring data in ways we once only associated with science fiction films. Data scientists and analysts live in a world with access to a plethora of tools to analyze and visualize this data - but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and the machine learning limitations of CPU compute capacity, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. 

Until now. Graphic Processing Units (GPUs) have stepped in to massively advance and parallel machine learning, data science and analytics for companies both small and large. Equipped with the ability to render graphics instantly, GPUs are computing, exploring and visualizing billions of rows of data in milliseconds - all on one chip. 

As a result, the ability to analyze data and run queries in real-time is giving machine learning algorithms the tools to become even smarter and faster, and is giving companies in industries like financial services, government, retail, adtech and telecommunications the types of tools to compete more effectively, respond more rapidly and tackle challenges they previously considered too hard for their legacy compute platforms. 
In this talk, Todd Mostak will explore the capabilities and applications of GPUs to advance and accelerate machine learning and data visualization. From design to interactivity to user experience, Todd will reveal how this technology is producing faster, measurable and more significant outcomes for businesses today.
